The textile ministry and MANTRA have joined hands to encourage the small and medium enterprises in south Gujarat region to take up value addition by setting up converter units for manufacturing baby care and hygiene products from non-woven technical textile (TT).

The workshop is aimed at connecting missing dots and provides practical information on how to develop usable consumer products and market them in the urban and rural areas. The converter sector for non-woven is the future of the TT industry and Surat could be a potential centre for it, said S K Basu, director of MANTRA.

Non-wovens have a significant share of the total technical textile (TT) sector. There are two segments in the industry; one is manufacturers of basic non-wovens and other is converters.
